How Much Formal Learning ?


Recommended Posts

That's really interesting.


Does anyone know if there is a figure which applies to preschool? We do very little adult directed stuff, although there are certainly some activities set up by adults which 'direct' those children who choose to access them.

Its not about numbers, its rooted in effective pedagogy.

The EYFS directs us to provide a balance of adult directed opportunities with time for child initiated activity. If you look in "learning playing and interacting" there is a useful diagram to demonstrate

(I've cut and pasted from the adobe file - attached) This pedagogy is also supported strongly by the EPPE research. It's the quality of the adult interactions and engagement too that makes a difference.
